Page 63 - W= weight of body at the surface; w = weight of a body at a given distance above or below the surface ; d= distance between the center of the earth and the center of the body ; R = radius of the earth = 4,000 miles.
Page 61 - To Divide One Number by Another, Subtract the logarithm of the divisor from the logarithm of the dividend, and obtain the antilogarithm of the difference.
Page 59 - X 10") - 3.8156. If the number is less than 1, the characteristic is negative and is numerically one greater than the number of zeros immediately following the decimal point. To avoid having a negative integral part and a positive decimal part, the characteristic is written as a difference.
Page 59 - For a number wholly decimal, the characteristic is negative, and is numerically one greater than the number of ciphers between the decimal point and the first digit of the decimal.

Page 61 - Multiply the logarithm of the number by the exponent which denotes the power to which the number is to be raised, and the result will be the logarithm of the required power. EXAMPLE. — What is the square of (a) 7.92 ? (6) the cube of 94.7? (<-) the 1.6 power of 512. that is, 5121-* ? SOLUTION.— (a) Log 7.92 = .89873; the exponent of the power is 2.

Page 77 - ... however, it is more convenient to reject the air into the cooler D and draw the fresh supply from the atmosphere, which has a much higher temperature. In this case, it is evident that the air does not return to its original state in the cooler, and the cycle is not closed. 1345. General Theory. — In the following discussion, it will be assumed, for the sake of simplicity, that compression and expansion are adiabatic and that the air is drawn into the compressor from the cooling chamber, so...
